The Rotary Club of Lancaster Sunrise and District 7870 Joined

Amigos De Honduras

February 9-17, 2019

 

In October of 1998, Hurricane Mitch, the strongest storm of the 1998 Atlantic hurricane season devastated the country of Honduras killing over 7000 people, leaving 1.5 million people homeless, and caused an estimated 2 billion dollars in damage. The President of Honduras said the storm set the country back 50 years in economic development. Because of that storm, for the past 17 years, Rotary district 7870 partnered with a small Rotary club in Danli, Honduras to provide humanitarian aid by sending teams to provide various services. This year, Dena and Dave Ament and Dave Lawrence from Lancaster Sunrise joined eighteen others and traveled to Honduras.

 

This project, named Amigos De Honduras has constructed eight schools, expanded 3 schools, converted 2 buildings into schools, painted and repaired 18 schools and worked on a youth center. They also have repaired hospitals and constructed a dental clinic. They have served an estimated 27,000 people with 23 medical and dental missions. Finally, they have installed more than 11,000 water filters.

 

We had three projects for  the week. We painted the interior and exterior of a new elementary school in a remote village. That cement block school was constructed from Rotary funds in the last 8 months. We also installed electrical work. 

 

At another school our teams installed a portable water filter system, so the students could finally access to clean water. They were drinking contaminated well water.

 

Also, for five days we had a medical and dental team at various locations about an hours drive from Danli.

 In March, the Lancaster Sunrise Rotary Club donated books to Mrs. Corrigan's third grade class at Carter and MacRae Elementary School in Lancaster. The club has been tutoring, mentoring, and donating books to this school for over eleven years. The students are always excited to receive these books that were signed with words of encouragement by the club's weekly speakers. Ten members of the Lancaster Sunrise Club tutor at the school on a regular basis and host an annual Christmas party for the class.
